Challenges to the Weimar Republc from the Right

AQA, Edexcel, OCR

The Weimar Republic faced challenges from the right wing of German politics.

This did not simply mean the Nazis, but also parties such as the National Party.

Many of these right-wing groups hated the Weimar Republic and wanted to bring back the Kaiser. They were strong believers in nation over person and were enthusiastic backers of law and order, capitalism and traditional ‘family’ values.

Inside the Reichstag, the extreme right achieved around 20% of the seats. Outside of the Reichstag there were significant challenges from the extreme right with the Kapp Putsch in 1920 and the Munich Putsch in 1923.
